MM&I Header

November 11, 2013 - Do you find yourself wishing you had another "you" to keep things moving and progressing the way you envision? Are you feeling like there are not enough hours in a day to get all that you want to accomplish done? Are you frustrated by other people because their work or action are not being performed to your standards, level of passion or competency, which is causing you to feel as though you are the only one that can progress things forward effectively? Nothing is more disheartening for a high achiever than feeling limited when you are doing everything you believe that you can do. The dilemma is that as you take on more and more in order to accomplish more and more, you are actually crippling your ability to achieve the things you have set out to achieve. No one can do it all alone. Other people bring unique talents that could manifest progress beyond what you are seein now if you open yourself to the possibilities.


Take an MM&I Moment to assess why you are craving a clone of yourself right now. List what you wish you had confidence to delegate to others that you are currently doing yourself? List what you wish you had more time to do, but you are being distracted by other things. Then list these "other things" and why they are so distracting. Now, instead of viewing your list as frustrating because you are the one responsible for getting it all done, view it as an opportunity to inspire and leverage others to positively engage with you in order to get things done. Instead of looking for a clone of you, seek the support of those who will complement you by using their talents and abilities. Identify collaborators, catalysts, cohorts, coordinators, and can-doers that could assist you as supporters and influencers for what you are trying to achieve. Engaging others in ways that they can best engage with you will be setting yourself up to replicate success instead of merely replicating you. By appreciating versus shunning the support of others, you open a world of probability from what is possible.

Savvy Secret Tip of the Week

Are you assuming too much regarding how you are running and making decisions in your business? Too often, the reason why businesses or initiatives fail is because not all perspectives, especially the most critical ones, are being considered.  A business owner's strong will and confidence are keys to success in having the tenacity to overcome challenges in operating and growing a business. However, if business owners believe that they always know best, then chances are more mistakes and missteps will be made.  To avoid making costly assumptions that could cause setbacks versus leveling up in your business, read Secrets #5 (Profit Sizing), #8 (Trend Getters), #9 (Investment vs Expense), #13 (Masters of Mindshare), and #50 (C + I3 + P = Next Level) in my book, 50 Marketing Secrets. To order either book, CLICK HERE!
  
ARE YOU CAUGHT IN A HABITUAL WEB?  This is the topic of my Me, Myself & Inc. column in the November issue of Sophie Woman's Magazine. Are you doing the same things, but expecting different results? Are you using your talents in your work, but not leveraging them? Are you gaining best practices in order to make them best habits? These are some of the questions I help you answer in the column.  CLICK HERE to read the column on page 29.
